  worst album to date

| | See all daryl23's reviews (1)

i wasnt fussed on 'girls' the 1st single released off this album but as a long time fan i when along n bought it anyway thinkin it would get better. how wrong i was... the only good catchy songs on here are 'you on a good day' and 'unbreakable heart.' was very disappointed. sounds very dated

  Good "retro/mature" album - Amelle has finally arrived!

| | See all maloweuk's reviews (1)

First thing I have to say is this album has fully instated Amelle as a babe and a surprisingly powerful singer as well. All the girls have really gone out on the vocals on this album and could easily put other girl groups to shame! Keisha sounds soulful and strong while Heidi is proving she is the range amongst them

The actual songs on this album are of a high standard and suit the "revised" line up' vocals and style, this album is a lot more structured and stylish than "change" which was a dodgy mixed bag!
Stand out songs on here are "You on A Good Day" "Nothing as Good as You" very good motown songs with a modern feel, "Side Chick" good and cheeky r'n'b track "Sunday Rain" "Every Broken Heart" and "Can we Call A Truce" very well written, emotionally felt songs . Even though a few acts have been doing the "retro" vibe and babes have done it with their own twist and made this very interesting album to listen to from start to finish.

Anyway I hope the babes pull off something completely different for their next album because as good as this album is and the theme they have gone for, has worked.
This album just doesn't have the rawness and edge as their earlier albums but if you need to pick a well produced and slick album for the retro and slightly dark/mature feel, get this one!!

  An ok album

I hate the singles so far 'Girls and No Can Do' but i love there collaboration with Taio Cruz is amazing and i love the Unbreakable heart is the best song on the album. And the band isn't the same without Mutya!

  One of the best albums

| | See all diamonds09's reviews (1)

There is very few albums where i like every song but this is one of them and they are all different.
I think this is one of the best albums sugababes have ever done
I would recomend it to anyone

  Are they becoming a broken record player?

In my view they are on the verge. I have loved these girls from the very beginning but since Amelle joined she has refreshed the group and given it a good vibe but their songs are beginning to become repetative and similar on each album. In other words there not being as creative and stand out as they used to.

As for their image and album covers its like their stuck in a warp. I like these girls but id love to see them re-invent themselves for their next album or i will start 'hating'.

The sugababes are great... I wasn't that keen on 'Girls' but I love 'like a star' and 'side chick'... I think they've lost there edge a bit since Mutya left but they're still gr8. I think this album is a grower so give it a chance

  Brilliant Album

The new album is brilliant!
Every track on the CD sounds great.
I enjoyed this more than the new Girls Aloud album "Out Of Control" which only has a few good tracks and the rest are boring.

Well done girls.

  6th album and still going strong...

| | See all Fudgie2's reviews (3)

I have to agree with others that this album takes a few listens to get into it. Stand out tracks for me are Side Chick and Unbreakable Heart which reminds me of All Saints work with William Orbit on Pure Shores. There are some mediocre tracks and overall I prefer their work with Xenomania, but this is still a good album and worth persevering with.

  A lot better on 3rd or 4th play

I was disapointed on a first listen and would have given it 2 *, though I played it in the car a few times and most tracks really do grow on you.
